  • RackSRV has been our UK server provider for as long as we can remember. They have always provided us with a stable server and professional support, even if we caused a problem on the server ourselves. RackSRV is all we look for in a trusted server provider. Thanks guys!

  • I've been with racksrv for only a week, but so far any tickets raised have been answered in under 10 minutes. If this is the customer service I am to expect from RackSRV, I do hope if a serious problem arises it will be resolved in the same manner. I'll definitely write another review in a years time. Thank you RackSRV...
